Mai Zarkawi Story
Mai Zarkawi, 25 years old, jewelry designer\artist and dancer
My passion started from exploring the movement of my body and how it moves through empty space.
I grew up in a small Palestinain village, Majd al-kroum.I had an amazing childhood where I would play in the backyard; in the soil, running barefoot with friends, where I could feel everything around me with all my senses.
I grew up creating materials with my hands, in pursuit of identity., When I started studying jewelry design, I was always carrying my inner child inside of me looking and exploring to find my identity.
Jewelry for me is not only an accessory, it is a story and a message to be told. Through the materials and techniques, I seek to discover myself through the topics that I deal with, which are usually related to
individual identity and community identity.
I have exhibited my artwork in many countries such as Germany,
Budapest, Moscow, and France, while continuing to work in the jewelry field
